Busy port when ships are loading/unloading. Outside of those hectic times there are plenty of coffee places as well as restaurants if you are hungry. There are fishmongers also where you can buy fresh fish and other seafood.

It is a very quiet town but right at the port their are small restaurants with amazing sea food. It has the freshest and best Calamari i've had ever in all of Greece and the world. It is worth spending a day.
